Question 6 Multiple Choice

A large firm uses three suppliers of computer printer cartridges. The Del Norte company supplies 45% of the cartridges, the Smithson Valley company supplies, 35% of the cartridges, and the Antioch Company supplies the rest. Five percent of the cartridges supplied by Del Norte are defective in some way (leak, dry, broken, etc.). Eight percent of the cartridges supplied by Smithson Valley are defective, and six percent of the cartridges supplied by Antioch are defective.
